I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.

Albert Einstein

Curious, me?  Maybe so.

Several years ago I was given toffee as a Christmas gift from one of my students.  Not just any old candy, the most delightfully buttery, crunchy, and brittle toffee.  A treat that is remembered fondly six years later is a treat indeed.  This confection was from Morgan Price Candy Company in Decatur, Alabama.

Bobby Flay told his group on Next Food Network Star not to describe food at delicious.  According to his advice, it doesn't really mean anything.  This may be true, but Morgan Price Candy Company is full of amazing, maybe even delicious things. 

I finally made it there today.  I sampled toffee and dark chocolate bark.  I came home with a praline, toffee, and cheese straws. 

Yes, treats indeed.

Welcome Summer

My last day at preschool, graduation that evening, the girls' school nurse calls.  Claire has a fever.  She is better now, I think.  I believe she will go back to school tomorrow.  What a change in a instant.  I had to quickly clean up because I wouldn't be able to go back the clean up the classroom the following day.

Josh saved the day and picked her up, I hated to leave with graduation practice.

Two Weeks...

Yes, in two weeks we will all be out of school and packing up for Disney World.  I can almost see the end in sight.  But, it is a busy two weeks before we get there.

Gossipy Wisdom

There is exciting news that can't be contained.  There is juicy bits of drama--that should be contained.   There are dark hurts that must be contained.


Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live. Mark Twain
